Kalayci contrasts Y2K-inspired silhouettes like structured corsetry with elaborate ribbon lace-ups and delicate sheer lace panels. Structured boning and quilted satins have been used as a Kalayci brand signature from the beginning, but Y2K elevates quilted satin styles like Kristen, Carla and Yasmeen using structured custom-made fabric that’s been elaborately stitched to flatter the body. The gold detailing that’s become synonymous with Kalayci features in the form of signature gold zip closures and polished gold buckles on Irina, Claudia and Gisele.
Intricate lace-ups are a statement detailing weaved throughout the Y2K collection in complex combinations. Think luxurious ribbon hand-weaved through gold buckles or layered intricately onto delicate lace panels. Pieces that appear minimalist are subtly maximalist in detail up close. Take the flattering Heidi midi dress that features structured stretch crepe contrasted with custom-stitch velvet panelling.
Celebrating the female form, signature body contouring pieces include meticulous craftsmanship on structured crepe, luxury velvet and custom-made satin. Delicate lace panels are cleverly positioned against contoured silhouettes for a chic reveal and conceal effect – on the hemline on Naomi, at the waistline on Cindy, and across shoulders on Elle. Corsetry is artfully moulded with bra cups and boning to create the perfect support and sculpt the body.
